Come to that, since they're building an nbn with high capacity land based connectivity, all broadcast is unnecessary.
With the rising difficulty, you can't make money now without it being near to $1000. If it was much less, people would stop mining it.
If a database is good, it should be possible to use it for ALL problem domains.
Of course, by this criteria, a relational database is NOT "good".
But I would have thought an object database is good, and would work in any situation. Unfortunately, they never seemed to really take off.
Anyway, I'd rather be using an object database for complex data of ANY kind than some crazy XML database. I can sort of see why a health application that might have tons and tons of fields might be tempted to use an XML storage, but I still think its a mistake. XML is ALWAYS a mistake.
The organic industry was ALWAYS marketed as naturalness, not "better" (whatever that means).
If that's true, it only reinforces that the article makes a good point that its no different to genetic engineering. In fact, then it really is genetic engineering using a different technique and should be regulated the same way.
If this is so "natural", they won't be patenting the result.... RIGHT????
I don't know, those 50000 networks are probably no less secure than before. The NSA probably has an encrypted secure channel into them, which is no easier to hack than whatever exploit they originally used to get in. Who knows, they might have even closed the original exploit and made them more secure.
Yeah, but it seems less objectionable to suffer under the will of the majority than under the will of the oligarchs.
Yes well, you're assessing people in terms of victory to America vs victory to England, Germany, Russia etc etc. The rest of us are thinking about victory for the people vs the surveillance state, which we think is a more important battle than killing the occasional wild muslim.
Yeah, they ought to put up a statue of him in Washington Mall. The only difference between him and the founding fathers is the founding fathers got away with overthrowing the corrupt establishment, and he didn't.
It really should be time that 99.9% of the code written ought not to be in languages that have undefined behaviour. It's time we all use languages which are fully defined.
Having said that, if something in code is undefined, and the compiler knows it, then it should generate an error. Very easily solved. If this STACK program is so clever, it should be in the compiler, and it should be an error to do something undefined.
"That means moderation, comments, ratings, votes, indexes and so on that don't decentralize well."
I'm sure it could be decentralized. Just needs some work done on the area. Who would have thought currency could be decentralized? (bit coin).
He's saying that the newspapers stole information via phone hacking, and Snowden stole information.
It's pretty damned ridiculous though since Snowden stole information from the chief information stealers - the NSA.
No doubt someone had to "steal" some information to uncover the newspaper phone hacking story too.
Maybe that's why you were replaced, lol
You didn't read the article, which I suppose is par for the course on slashdot. They don't care less about Aereo. They care about the precedent that anyone can take their programming free and resell it if you set up enough antennas. If Aereo can do it, anyone can.
